Según un accidente ocurrido el 5 de febrero de 2016, donde una grúa mató a un transúnte que pasaba cuando la grúa trabajaba en una terraza de la calle donde se encontraba el peatón, la ciudad ha recurrido a una prohibición de emergencia que deshabilita el uso de las grúas del tipo crawler si la velocidad del viento alcanza o supera las 20 millas por hora. Un grupo de trabajadores ha propuesto que se levante la prohibición de emergencia, estableciendo los límites pasados, hasta que el Grupo de Trabajadores Técnicos complete la revisión del accidente en los próximos tres meses.

Following a February 5, 2016 crane accident, #NewYorkCity put an emergency ban in place which disallowed the use of crawler #cranes if the wind speeds reached 20 miles-per-hour or above. A working group has proposed the emergency ban be lifted, thereby reinstating the old limits, until the Technical Working Group completes its review of the #craneaccident in the next three months.

Laundromats are a prime location for slip and falls which can cause serious injuries. Slip and falls can occur at #laundromats due to water or detergent left on the floor. People also slip on forgotten clothing articles and dryer sheets. Even when one exercises caution when using a laundromat facility #accidents can still occur.

Police are still investigating how the accident occurred, and whether the forklift was defective or not. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration #OSHA is launching an independent investigation into whether the #safetystandards at the #constructionsite were adhered to.

The recent criminal prosecution of the head of building consulting company brought to light one of the #safetyconcerns at #construction sites regarding the falsification of safety inspection reports. The accused allegedly searched through Craigslist to hire bellhops, musicians, and restaurant workers to sign off on #safetylogs using either their own names or forging the names of licensed safety inspectors; one of the names belonged to a deceased safety inspector.

Recently, The New York Times published an expose shedding light on the rising number of injuries and fatalities in the construction industry over the last two years. The Times called many of the accidents that occurred “completely avoidable,” concurring with a federal investigation’s findings of one of the accidents.
